Subject: "All Prunes Are Plums But Not All Plums Are Not Prunes"
In this neverending odyssey of prunes, we start with a somewhat needless history of the guy who brought the Prune to America. After about 10 minutes of a somewhat grinding history of what brought the prune to North America, the film suddenly shifts focus to the growth and distribution of this wonder fruit. It's an interesting process, one which, well, if you've ever wanted to know how Plums are made into prunes, now is your chance. The film concludes with a ghastly display of what can be made from prunes (Prune pie! 7 day Prune cake (always fresh!). A somewhat dry(ed) film with somewhat interesting highlights.
